This is a good walkthrough of the Caribbean by fisherman, Victor Woolworth.
After 1,600 miles I feel I should say something about my experience so far in the “Barbara May” (the kayak, not the wife.) I am not sponsored by or linked to Eddyline the manufacturer of the “Shasta” in any way so the following is my unbiased appraisal. I purchased the kayak solely on the recommendation of […]

Forty five pounds of lightweight fish catcher. At Kayak Angler we love little more than boat news, so we were delighted to get this surprise bulletin from Eddyline. They’ve launched a new fishing-friendly sit-on-top, the 12-foot long Caribbean. Someone’s thinking of palm trees, silky coral sand and azure water. Like every other kayak built by the Burlington, […]

I just paddled across Ft. Peck Lake, over 130 miles, with waves over three feet and rolling over the Shasta at times. The boat and custom spray skirt functions outstandingly! I was able to keep up with two paddlers traveling with much less gear in a canoe and they are twenty years younger than me. […]
The Sky 10 kayak came into existence due to the popularity of our well liked Skylark and the ever increasing demand for smaller, lighter boats. This kayak carries most of the paddling qualities and features of its 12 foot sister but sports a good 5-6 lbs less weight, making car-topping and general handling that much […]
Comments from Sea Kayaker Magazine Review: “A stable but lively boat for small to medium paddlers, the Sitka ST is a fun kayak that maneuvers well and can provide safe passage in wind, keep up in group paddles, and provide an easy car top due to its light weight.” “Surprisingly quick. It has an easy […]

As a child, Lisa’s father (who just passed away at 94) taught her how to Sitka ST. She would stand on his feet as they moved to the intoxicating rhythms of Brazil. We thought of this as we searched for a name for our newest kayak. You will feel like you are dancing when you slip into the snug […]
